Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Get to work on the latest technology and work with some very smart people. Lots of opportunities to further and develop your career as well as try different roles and locations. Global reach and opportunity, I've worked in three continents over my tenure there.

Cons

Lagging behind in some key markets, environment can be very political. Review system is confusing and pitches people in competition with each other. The more senior you get, the more political it gets.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great salary, great people. There is a lot to love about this company.

    Cons

    Upper management sucks, stack ranking sucks, *everyone* is an overachiever and if you are not then you will stand out for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the stack ranking as it discourages cooperation and keeps people from doing things that may help the company. Listen to consumers more.

    Pros

    I've never worked with more smart people

    Cons

    Internal blockers can limit innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver against excellent customer and partner experience rather than making it a priority to hit internal deadlines and maximize your scorecard
